I just had new passport photos taken: a necessity as my appearance has changed so much over the last year and a half. My face is much less “round”; my chin is much better defined. I’m now 5′ 10″, 157 pounds. My other measurements are 32″ waist, 30″ inseam, 38″ chest (38R jacket with sleeves usually just a smidgen long — almost always not worth the alterations), 15 1/2″ neck, 34″ sleeve, 39″ hips, 32 1/2″ natural waist (for a kilt; at the navel), 23 1/2″ kilt total rise. I do not know my ring size, hat size, and the measurements needed for custom hose. I will discover the latter within a short span of time as I am interested in commissioning a pair of hand-knitted tartan hose.
And just today, Alexis Malcolm emailed to let me know that my next kilt, in a tartan known as Campbell Ancient Muted “Old & Rare,” has shipped; I’ll be wearing it to the kirk on Sunday.
